Are you planning a family friendly event and looking for an activity that’s out of the box? Contact us at Pop Shop America. We can help you host your event with cool hands on crafts, workshops, shopping pop ups and interactive art!

Family friendly events are best when they are fun for kids and fun for adults. That way everyone can participate. We also love when craft workshops and activities have a learning component. It’s so much fun when participants can leave a workshop, not just with stylish goods but also with new knowledge!
